PhotographyBLOG on the A1000:
I reviewed both cameras at the same time and actually preferred the slightly cheaper A1000 model in many ways. Although offering a smaller 2.5 LCD screen and shorter 4x zoom lens, the A1000 is noticeably smaller and lighter, has a true optical viewfinder, and benefits from having a curved hand-grip area.

Beginners will love it – the A2000 is a camera that produces excellent images in good light, covers a large focal range for such a small camera thanks to the 6x zoom lens, and has a massive 3 inch LCD screen on the back that can be viewed from a wide angle.
